Last Saturday, September 28th, we held the Prince William & Manassas Family Alliance’s 2019 Fall Forum. The subject? Keeping radical sex education out of Prince William County. We videoed the event (broken up into four videos), and the videos are excellent. Our guests, Elizabeth L. Schultz, Meg Kilgannon, and Josh Hetzler, provided us excellent presentations.
The video above is Elizabeth L. Schultz‘s presentation. Schultz is a member of Fairfax County School Board. She describes her personal experience and what she has learned. Schultz is anxious to encourage all of us to get involved and vote. Please listen carefully as she explains why. Also, please encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to listen.
Schultz wants all of us, not just parents, to carefully consider who we elect to serve on the School Board. Why? Consider this quote from President Ronald Reagan.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it, and then hand it to them with the well fought lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don’t do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free. — Address to the annual meeting of the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce (30 March 1961) (from here)
What does it take to be a free people? Wisdom and virtue. Unfortunately, we are not born wise and virtuous. We are born as little savages who must be taught wisdom and virtue. Parents depend upon the schools where they send their children to help them instruct their children in wisdom and virtue. Without good and competent leadership, good people on the School Board, our public schools cannot properly instruct students in wisdom and virtue. Therefore, we must elect good and competent people to run the public schools.
A few minor notes about the video. Nothing fancy about it. Just a guy with a cellphone, a tripod, and a flood light.
- The video starts off a bit dark. Forgot to turn on the flood light.
- Sound quality is generally good. Schultz speaks clearly and loudly enough to be easily understood. So, we have a good recording.
